A Great Saturday
After slogging through Friday - it was really tough easing back into the stressful environment - this morning was the total opposite. The Star sportswriter was going to do a feature on the Beginners Program that I was co-running and both my partner and I had sent out SMSes to our participants reminding them to turn up. And what a turn up it turned out to be! There were close to 20 of us including newcomers to the session and when I entered the car park, adidas were already busy setting up their booth and the Footscan counter.
And with Choi's running group there as well, the area was a filled with action. I also managed to catch up with Jessica, Kenneth, DK, Tey and Anne. There are a couple of runners in the Beginner's group who have potential to go further and that's very heartening. There's also a good spread of younger and older runners from various races and sex, though the females outnumber the males by far. Which is an excellent sign. In this country we need more women to enter the sport.
I shall be ferrying Carbokid 1 to the art class later on and will be doing some marketing with my Mom. Some household chores and should then complete my productive day. We've registered Carbokid 2's name with the national registration office - it's Pang Wei Xian. Both C1 and 2 (collectively known as The Complex Carbs) are doing fine. We do notice that C1 seems to want a little bit more attention and has been a tad more mischievious in order to get it, so we're making sure he's still getting our focus and knows that he's loved. It's all a learning experience for us and where previously the solo kid was getting our attention, now we have to juggle with 2. Likewise C1 will also need to adapt to the new member of the family and hopefully we'll all do OK.
